Topic: Dendrochronology Presented by: Daniel Griffin, faculty member in the Department of Geography, Environment & Society

Daniel will share about work done in his lab:

We research climate, trees, water resources, and environmental dynamics. We identify and map old-growth forests for management, conservation, and science. We emphasize fieldwork, development of high-quality datasets, and hypothesis-driven research on timely, socially-relevant issues. Our research tools include dendrochronology, spatiotemporal numerical analyses and statistics, advanced geospatial technologies, and high-resolution image analysis. We are one of several groups affiliated with the MN Dendro Collective.
